Let’s begin a 3D drawing! If you don't have any previous experience with this kind of picture, we suggest you start with the simplest drawings, for example, a circle. When learning to draw in 3D, it’s best to use simple pencils with different grades of lead. If you can, acquire a special kit. Soft lead pencils make a darker and thicker line; hard lead pencils a thinner and lighter line. In addition, when drawing in 3D you must sometimes bear down harder and sometimes more lightly
